    Michael Allison,

    Yes, the earnings report beat 78% of analysts projections.

    So, there is a conservative projections that companies can beat--and the analysts don't want to go over the earnings because so many of there stocks have buy ratings.

  • Retirement Income: An Attractive Yield May Not Be Beautiful On The Inside [View article]
    davstein,

    Yes, "T" would have given you a better dividends. However, there is a capital gains for over 5 years.

    Why "T" dividends was 5.1%, the growth rates over 5 years was 4.6% for capital gains as 2.4% for dividend growth. The average Dividend Aristocrats would have given you 2.4% per dividend with a growth rate of 16.8% and a distribution rate of 8.7%.

    I you don't have time to wait 3-5 years for the for a recovery period, and while you in your high 70's, you'll may make "T" a better choice for your dividends.

  • Cornerstone Progressive Return Fund Rights Offering Is A Fool's Game [View article]
    Lampshade2,

    I am not familiar with your country.

    The U.S. has various "treaty" in foreign country that do not tax your dividend--maybe the Netherlands.

    However, I would revised the "treaties" that would apply to your dividends in each country.

    Franklin,

    Why would you just spend the distribution? You are taking shares that are originally a discount (NAV) to the price? If the right offering isn't in 2015, 2016 and beyond, your premium (price/NAV) would go down to a discount.

    Kgreniger,

    As an investor, you are permitted to buy and sell shares of the same stock whenever you want, including within a 30-day period.

    However, when it comes time to file your income taxes, buying and selling the same stock within a 30-day period may trigger wash sale rules, which can affect how much you can deduct for your losses on your income taxes.

    However, if you don't have losses, you're not an investors.

    Bogus Man,

    The yields are 5.7% for the overall CEF industry. Obviously, there is leverage that will make the dividend bigger (if interest rates don't go up).

    However, it is the sector types and the environment you are in that will make the capital gains in this situation (http://bit.ly/HfXxJd).

    Speculative,

    I am in the Closed-End Fund (CEF) industry. This is a question of a premium to the fact that you're paying for your next dividend.

    If the right questions are then asked, it will elucidate the facts of the matter.

    ReaperLynx, and for other shareholders who said they may have a gain:

    Have you exercised on rights the offerings? If you do, then you are paying yourself the dividend thought the rights offering.

    If you don't have a rights offerings..one rights offering in 2012, 2013 and 2014, then how will you pay for the stock and its dividends. It has a 24.4% premium? How does this end? Another rights offering in 2015?

    This is ludicrous!

    WTK,

    The list has all 77 CEFs that are "Managed Distribution" policies. The list goes to the chart (number 1) for all the listing.

    I will send it to your e-mail tomorrow (March 8th).

    rlosey,

    I am only speaking to dividends that are return-of-capital (ROC) that are trading at a premium (share price per share/NAV per share).

    The CEF that you recommend may make sense ($80 share price with a $100 NAV per share) if the pay-outs are a return-of-capital in a year.

    Best,
